Android 7.1.2 Nougat Will Let You Decide Where to Set a Live Wallpaper

Android 7.1.2, Google’s latest maintenance release for Android Nougat, was released to compatible devices merely few days back and new features from the new build are slowly being reported. The latest in the series is a feature that many Android users have been waiting for years to arrive. With Android 7.1.2, Android users will be able to opt where they want to put the live wallpaper, as in, on the home screen or on both the home screen and lock screen. Unfortunately, earlier Android versions by default applied live wallpapers to both home screen and lock screen. The new feature was first reported by Droid-Life.

A recent report said that Android 7.1.2 also introduced the fingerprint ‘swipe for notifications’ gesture to Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P smartphones. The feature was first available only on Pixel devices. The new feature for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P can be found in the Settings menu under Moves and can be enabled. The swipe for notifications gesture lets you open the notification panel just by swiping down on the fingerprint sensor at the back.
